Cool New Curly Here!! - 3C


I've been transitioning for about 5 months now and I've decided to grow it out. I just didn't have to guts to do a bc. I was told that my true curl pattern won't show until about 8 months in. Right now by the looks of my roots, I think I'm a 3C. With the grow-out I've found so many challenges with managing these 2 different hair types. Dense, coarse roots and smooth, weak relaxed hair that snaps when it's wet. Weird combo! Conditioning has become my best friend. If you have any suggesting that could make wash days and natural styles less of a hassle please share them with me!!
